    This is an absolute triumph of rationality, practicality and common sense applied to the public school system that is sadly void of all This book will likely get some teachers, most liberals and all union loyalists up in arms because it directly challenges some core beliefs that have been taken as gospel by these groups I think that this book is an absolute must read for any parent with children in the public school system because it maps out the complexities of a system that is set up not for This is an absolute triumph of rationality, practicality and common sense applied to the public school system that is sadly void of all This book will likely g...
